 Besides, the foods originating from animals are a very good source of calcium, iron, phosphorus, complex B vitamins and specially vitamin B12 and zinc.

 Proteins are indispensable for muscle growth and development, calcium is necessary for adequate growth of the bones and strong teeth.

 Iron is necessary in the formation of blood although women, particularly during the menstrual period need to adequately consume iron in order to prevent anemia.

 Zinc is also important for growth.

 Vitamin B12 is only found in animal products specially in liver, kidney, red meats, eggs, fish, milk and cheese and is fundamental in the formation of tissues, growth and development of the neurons.

 Each of these groups play a specific role in your health; intake of more than one or insufficient intake of another is not good.

 Try to combine them and you will find yourself to be a healthy person with a better quality of life, present and future.

 Although this subject should not really be treated at this point, let us remind you that regular exercise is very important for people of all ages.
